Wooloomoolo Steakhouse, an independent group of celebrated premium steakhouses from Hong Kong, stakes its claim in Singapore by opening its first restaurant on Level Three of the Swissotel the Stamford.
The restaurant and bar is situated in a stunning locale with impressive views of the city. Comprising 6,300sq ft of wining and dining space, this stylish restaurant promises a memorable dining experience with its premium steak selection from Australia and US as well as an outstanding range of wines and cocktails.
The first design feature at the restaurant entrance to whet the diners’ appetite is the sleek window display of Wooloomooloo's jewels – the signature beef products.
Elegant furnishings and leather, upholstered seats, the restaurant is also decorated with neat wood piles.
A semi-private dining area is created using chain link curtains which afford diners a more intimate spot for private celebrations.
Wooloomooloo’s inviting ambience clearly benefits from the expansive floor-to-ceiling glass windows that look out to the beautiful greenery lining Stamford Road and the scenic view of one of Singapore's oldest landmarks – St Andrew's Cathedral.
With a breathtaking view of the Marina Bay Sand and surrounding, Wooloomooloo tantalizes your visual senses as well as your taste buds.
The 40-seater lounge is bathed in ambient lighting and cool jazz numbers start off the evening before the music progresses to more upbeat tunes. A feature of this area is the long communal Balinese Suar Wood table that seats 10.
